New bus/metro prices

The cost of all tickets and passes for the Rome public transportation system is going up on May 25th. If you have a ticket or pass bought before the price increase, you can use it until July 31st. From August 1st to October 31st, you can exchange it for a new ticket or pass, paying the difference. After that, you need to throw it out.

The new prices are:

BIT (Single tickets) - €1.50 (now good for 100 minutes rather than 75)

BIG day pass .- €6 (break even at 4 trips)

BTI 3-day pass - €16.50 (break even at 11 trips)

CIS 7-day pass - €24 (break even at 16 trips)

The regional BIRG passes will also go up. The 3-zone pass (also called Zone C pass) will be €8, instead of €6. This is the pass that is good as far as Tivoli. The 5-zone (zone E) pass, which was used for trips to the cruise port at Civitavecchia will be €12 instead of €9. 4 zones will be €9.30, and six and seven zone will be €14.

More than just the threatened rise in the BIT then!

With museum price changes and summer exhibitions, it perhaps redresses the 2012 increase of €5 in the RomaPass...

For a day trip to Ostia, what kind of ticket should I buy? (I already have the monthly pass for Rome's bus and metro, but I guess that it can't be used for going to Ostia.)

A single Rome bus/metro ticket gets you to Ostia opn the commuter trian and another one gets you back. YOur monthly pass should be fine. ostia is on the Rome trnasoprt network

In terms of the list above, this one:

BIT (Single tickets) - €1.50 (now good for 100 minutes rather than 75)

... but your monthly pass will be fine - since Ostia Antica, and Ostia Lido, are both within Rome!

In case you've not found it, the city ticket will take you to the places marked in red - or the end of the line where there isn't one - on this map....

So, for instance, only to 'Fiera di Roma' on the bluey-grey FR1 line - but to the terminus of the grey Ostia route!

Does the Roma pass cover the trains to ostai antica; what about getting to pompeii?? Is it extra or does the roma pass cover it?
